Federal Appeals Court Permits Law Enforcement To Use Exigent Circumstances To Obtain Suspect’s GPS Location

August 1, 2016: The Wall Street Journal reported that a federal appeals court in New York ruled law enforcement was permitted to use the “exigent circumstances” exception to the warrant requirement to obtain the GPS locations of a suspected killer. The court ruled police were legally permitted to ping the suspect’s cellphone when he was identified as possibly being involved in a murder. Law enforcement declined to obtain a warrant in fear of the safety of the undercover officers and informants who were investigating the suspect.

The “New Normal” Security Standards

The “New Normal” Security Standards

Shootem Up Flyer_2016

Terrorist and criminals have escalated their levels of violence throughout the world. They deem no act too severe, or target too soft to achieve their objectives. Therefore, safety and security countermeasures need to operate with zero risk tolerances to deny terrorists and criminals the ability to project their “new normal”.

Here are some requirements to protect against the “new normal” paradigm.

Must Work 24/7 – 365 Days a Year Safety & security countermeasures must operative and be effective nonstop. Terrorist and criminals are ambush attackers and seek the most vulnerable opportunities. They plan in advance and await their opportunity.

Operate on a “Pass/Fail” Basis with 100% ObjectivityTerrorist and criminals try to “blend in” to avoid detection, until they begin their attack. They will avoid human eye detection and reaction until they decide to act, leaving security personnel a step behind. Their best ability to blend in will be negated by countermeasures operating objectively.

Zero Limit Reaction Time to Contain Threats – It takes the average person .75 seconds to react to a threat, and even longer if they’re tired or distracted. Today’s effective security countermeasures require zero reaction time to contain a threat from projecting control or lethality.

100% Performance Standards Tested & Guaranteed – Performance standards need to be designed and tested so to operate as required, taking into account hundreds of pre-determined scenarios. Performance standards also must be upgradable to counter ever evolving “new normal” threats.

Detect Hidden Weapons – Even to the trained eye it’s easy to conceal a weapon. Automated weapons detection technologies isolate and deny criminals and terrorists the element of surprise, against their intended targets.

Take a Bullet Without FlinchingBallistic rated countermeasures must continue to perform and protect personnel. Properly designed ballistic rated systems will thwart the average threat while keeping safe patrons and bystanders.
